Monday Musings: Wait

Monday Musings: Wait


Buried and suffocating beneath all your old belongings,

hidden under discarded cards and abandoned teddy bears,

I really feel forgotten.


I miss the days when you held me closest to your chest,

cuddling me to your heart as the night came and left;

I was the favorite.


I lie in wait and hope for your arrival,

just a hint of your coat tail as you slip past,

maybe just your long shadow lying against me,

or even a small wisp of hair, and I would be thankful.


And so I wait for you to notice me as I lay at the bottom

of the discarded cards and abandoned teddy bears.



Monday Musings: I Breathe

Monday Musings: I Breathe
I Breathe

My heart does this thing.

It skips a beat.

It pitter-patters.

Nothing matters

Except you.


Your smile warms me down to my toes.

I think everyone knows.

But I won’t say a word to them about it.

It’s our secret.

A secret the whole world knows.


They know you hold my hand,

bring me gifts,

kiss my nose,

hug me close.


They know it’s you I love,

I want,

I need,

I breathe.
